6/4/2013 —

Two courses offered this summer during Penn State DuBois' Arts, Science and Technology Institute will provide college-bound high school students the chance to prepare for future exams.  The S.A.T Prep Course and the Academic College Enhancement (ACE) Summer Program will both be held in June.


The six-session S.A.T. course will help students to sharpen their test-taking abilities by reviewing critical reading skills and essay writing techniques, building knowledge of required mathematical concepts, providing methods for overcoming test anxiety, and more.


The ACE Summer Program, sponsored by the DuBois Educational Foundation, prepares students for college placement exams by introducing them to college-level academic expectations over the course of multiple sessions.  They'll receive previews of college algebra, pre-calculus, and English, and will be introduced to the college experience by taking in overviews of campus life, career services, and more.


The S.A.T. Prep Course will be held from Noon until 3:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from June 11, through June 27 at a cost of $125 per student.  The ACE Summer Program will be held from Noon until 3:00 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays from June 10, through June 26, also at a cost of $125 per student.  Course fees also include required text books.  Courses are open to students in grades 9 through 12.  To register, visit www.dubois.psu.edu/youth or contact Rebecca Colletti for more information at 814-375-4772 or rjm32@psu.edu
